Thanks for asking your question. I will try and help you out.
It's possible the engine temp sensor is faulty and reading too high. But I would try and verify and make sure the engine is in fact not running hot. To do this, I would use a temp gun on the engine. If it's running hot. You'll see it.
Please reply back if you need more help or have more questions. I am happy to assist.
